Apart from being the only Filipino artist chosen to perform at the GMA (Golden Melody Awards) in Taiwan last June 26, 2022, Paolo Sandejas has a new milestone in his music career.
The young Universal Records Philippines singer-songwriter trended on social media when Kim Tae-hyung, a.k.a. V, of world-renowned South Korean boyband BTS included his song “Sorry” on his DRIVE VLOG playlist, which was uploaded on July 09, 2022 in time for ARMY Day.
The video, which runs for almost one hour, is the first episode in the boyband’s vlog series for their BANGTAN TV YouTube channel. V seems to really know the song by heart, as he can be seen jamming to Paolo’s song while driving his car.
Paolo Sandejas’ “Sorry” is part of his 2020 Purple Afternoon EP and now has over 405,000 streams and counting.
Filipino ARMYs expressed their pride over this news through the hashtags #PinoyPride and #ProudFiloArmy.
‘Paolo Sandejas’ also became a trending topic on Twitter under Music.
Paolo Sandejas is honored to have this “surreal experience.”
“The fact that one of the biggest artists in the world knows my name AND listens to my songs is insane to me! This is a surreal experience, and I have no words to express how honored I am that he enjoys a song I worked so hard on.” he explained.
